Yellow Squash Casserole is a Classic Southern Side Dish!

You know, I love a casserole recipes. I find they are an easy way to pack everything into one dish and call it a meal. Busy weeknights? Casserole recipes can be a real time saver! and the thing about this squash casserole recipe is that while it’s great served with a chicken recipe or baked ham, it’s also really easy to turn it into a main meal! Add shredded rotisserie chicken right in the recipe and you will have a whole meal on the table in just one casserole dish! What could be easier or faster?

Instant Pot  Squash Dressing

Start by turning on your Saute and let it get hot, add butter and oil. I ran my squash and 1 onion though a food processor and pulse about 5 to 7 times. Add squash mixture to your instant pot, Cut and dice your remaining onion and add it in. Saute until onion is almost translucent. In the meantime, cook cornbread according to package directions.  (I used Jiffy) When squash is done, add to another bowl and mix with salt and pepper, cream of celery and eggs.

When cornbread is done, add 2 cups crumbled cornbread to the mixture, stir well and make sure all egg and cornbread is mixed in.

Spray an 8x8 casserole dish and spread mixture evenly. Bake at 350 for 25 to 35 min until top is golden brown Spread cheese on top evenly and ENJOY!~

Oven Squash Dressing

Preheat oven to 350

Add butter and oil to pot on the stove.

Pulse squash and 1 onion though a food processor and pulse about 5 to 7 times.

Add squash mixture to your pot on the stove.

Cut and dice remaining onion and add it in. Saute until onion is almost translucent and squash is soft.

In the meantime, cook cornbread according to package directions.  (I used Jiffy)

When squash is done, allow to cool for a few minutes,  add to a large bowl and mix with salt and pepper, cream of celery and eggs.

When cornbread is done, add 2 cups crumbled cornbread to the mixture, (freeze the rest for your next batch) Stir well and make sure all egg and cornbread is mixed in.

Spray an 8x8 casserole dish and spread mixture evenly. Bake at 350 for 25 to 35 min until top is golden brown Spread cheese on top evenly and ENJOY!~

This recipe can be easily  doubled for  larger families or get togethers.

What Kind of Squash Do You Use?

it’s  great  to use up squash in the summer months when it’s in season! You can use all yellow squash, or you can use all green squash (zucchini) OR use a combination of both Like I did.

Can you make this squash casserole ahead of time?

Making this ahead is easy. Prep all your ingredients (as stated in the recipe) assemble the casserole, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate until it’s time to bake! You can pull it out of the refrigerator, 20 minutes ahead of time to bring up to room tempature. Then bake as you normally would.
